This month when Paige and I were coming up with our ideas for East vs West coast and she threw out the idea of bikinis and swim cover ups I immediately agreed since it is summer and both of us live in states known for bikinis, sunshine and beaches but inside I was absolutely freaking out. I've repeatedly said "You'll never catch me in a bikini on my blog" and yet here I am. At first I planned on doing the entire post in various bathing suit cover ups I own then I just decided to say screw it and do the bikini shots. With a milestone birthday right around the corner (and by corner I mean literally this weekend!) I might as well take a few risks, right? So here we go...
If I would have known Paige wasn't going to do any actual bikini shots I probably wouldn't have included any either but since I didn't get her pictures until 1 am EST this morning and I got up at 5:45 am to write this I figured I'd just go with what I have! Editing pictures before coffee is never a good idea. Plus you gotta step out of your comfort zone at some point, right?
Alright, so NOW it's my turn. I was lazy (and sick) so I didn't drive out to the beach like I had originally planned and instead headed down to the pool at 9 am in the morning to ensure no one else would be there, I might add. It was actually pretty peaceful down there at that time and not blazing hot yet! For this look I decided to mix and match two bikinis. I really thought the fringe with the tie dye made a fun match so I figured why not? I threw on this adorable cut out linen coverup over my bathing suit. Even though the sleeves are long on it the material is super breathable so it doesn't feel overly hot. I'll definitely be sporting this coverup in Key West next week!
Happy Friday lovelies! I'm not going to lie, I had every intention of taking today off from blogging since this week has been crazy ...
